I've put this in here because I think it might be less prone to being spammed than in QM's, infantry or Training Wing. I had my first shoot with the IW for 17 years this weekend. It was just 40 rounds at 25m, two practices of: 5 Prone 5 sitting 5 kneeling 5 standing. My first groups were almost off the target but after calculating the correction (We were on iron sights - 0.5 mil per click) I wason target and my second set of groups were: Prone: 30mm Sitting 25mm Kneeling: 45mm (Plus a declared flier) Standing 40mm This was considered "very good" by those conducting the range, one of whom runs the Bn shooting team. Now it struck me that there wasn't much variation between these group sizes. This made me wonder whether this was an indication that I was shooting close to what the weapon system is capable of. The weapon in question was in good order and rattle free although there was some damage to the crown through over-zealous cleaning. I have been told by an EX SASC chap that the acceptance standard for SA80 series when new (i.e. from RO) was a 35mm group at 30m fired from a machine rest. This is of course an appalling standard of accuracy compared with even the acceptance standard for a Lee-Enfield (4" group at 200yds) but would tie in with my results. Has anyone got any definitive numbers on this? Is the whole legend of the SA80 being "very accurate" simply down to SUSAT making it easier to hit things?
